The Novo Nordisk Foundation

The Novo Nordisk Foundation Challenge Programme has been established to fund the establishment of smaller centers where exceptional researchers collaborate towards a common goal within biomedicine and biotechnology. The aim is to facilitate world-class research focusing and finding new answers to the health challenges of today.

Under the theme "Recycling for a sustainable society", Professor Daniel Otzen and colleagues received DKK 57 million in funding for the establishment of the Center for enzymatic deconstruction of thermoset plastics for a sustainable society (En’Zync) at iNANO, Aarhus University.
